When cleverness pulls us toward unkindness

let’s privately


the wit,



to that

within us

which enjoys the

tenderness of connection more than wit.

    Dear Joan, Thank you for this thoughtful and challenging invitation. I find myself wondering if there might be such a thing as kind wit — more like wishing I guess. Will hope to develop more awareness of what’s going on and look for better ways to connect with kindness.
